2022 Goals:

In the coming year, we will continue to focus on these strategic imperatives:
1. To even out the playing field for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable citizens by providing equal access to high quality, life-changing services, at no cost to client.
2. To enhance our impact within communities across the state, providing workers in homes, schools, prisons, hospitals, courts, neighborhoods, streets — wherever you need us to be — to deliver a vast array of services tailored to specific needs.
3. To recruit and retain staff who are tops in their respective fields as we expand our evidence-based practice in all regions of the state.
4. To grow in response to community needs by developing innovative programs and partnerships, expanding our geographic footprint.
5. Increasing revenue streams of unrestricted funds to improve long-range sustainability of programs.
